Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
A song or rhyme book is a perfect choice to read to your baby before they are born – and after too. Babies pick up on rhythm and rhyme more easily than regular speech and they will recognise the pattern of the sounds when they are born. It’s a great way to help lay the foundations of language development.
Use this book in different ways depending on your mood. Talk about the pictures, read or sing the words, or hum the tune without words as a way to soothe your baby. You may find it relaxes you too!
